Does the key go in the cylinder, and the cylinder rotate? It is difficult to put a price on it sight unseen, due to not knowing the extent of the damage.

If the cylinder won't rotate, I would not suspect a passlock fault, other than the cylinder not rotating. It sounds like a possible circumstance of damage inside causing tumblers to become damaged or dislodged. The majority of the cost of repair is going to lie in the labor just to get the column and cylinder apart and extracted, and the parts that are going to be sacrificed in the process. Someone is going to have to look at it to assess the damage, and quote you an estimate from there. One option if you have not pursued it, is to contact your insurance company, and see what option you have with them.
